Re: [] Eclipse and Maven working group

FWIW, Tycho has a facility for aggregating update sites together too [1]. It consists of a pom file that lists update sites and a site.xml that lists features/categories. When you run the build, you get an aggregate p2 repo from the input sites and requested features, filed into the specified categories. It's dead simple and doesn't require and special knowledge of Buckminster, B3 or p2.


The reason I mention this is that if Cloudsmith isn't available for resourcing, Sonatype may be.

While I'm at it... an important consideration is resourcing. Technology
gets us part way there. But if it requires the equivalent of a full-time
person to babysit it, it's a non-starter. Webmaster has very limited
resources, so we'll be looking for community help to get this thing
started and keep it running.

I'd like to see representation from Cloudsmith as well since they do the
aggregation work on the release train and have some experience exposing
the repositories as both p2 and Maven.

I would encourage this currently-hypothetical working group to start
with requirements and then find a technology that does what we need.

Can somebody volunteer to lead this effort? We have a few folks who want
to participate, but without leadership, I fear this goes nowhere.

+1 to involving Sonatype, since they could provide a Nexus install @ for publishing both m2 and p2 artifacts.

I'm happy to help out too - we're working on this very issue right now
with JBoss Tools.

I would recommend we have to involve the M2Eclipse guys from
Sonatype, and
would suggest drafting Jesse McConnel and the guys from the jetty

I don't mind being added to the working group. I have a lot of
experience adopting Maven for Eclipse projects given the work we did
with EGit and JGit.
